There have been points updates for both National Hot Rods & ProStocks.

In the Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Points Championship for National Hot Rods, leader Jaimie McCurdy has seen his advantage at the top of the table reduced after mechanical problems at Tullyroan Oval last Saturday night. With only the final round left to run at Aghadowey Oval at the end of October, Jaimie now lies just nine points ahead of second placed Gary Wilson, with Derek Martin and defending champ Adam Maxwell right in contention too. Glenn Bell & Keith Martin are also in with a mathematical chance of taking victory, so a real final round shootout lies in store!

Stephen McCready is the top dog in the ProStocks Raymond Harper Automotive NI Points Championship, holding a substantial 56 point advantage over second man Stephen Boyd, with Dan Shannon in third. The next outing for the ProStocks is of course the World Cup at Aghadowey Oval on October 15th, and there is already a strong Scottish contingent booked in to appear.

Two Irish Championship titles were on offer during Saturday night's race action at Tullyroan Oval, with Kells driver Derek McMillan landing the Stock Rods crown and Crumlin's Shea Duff the Junior Productions version. Local Tullyroan driver Allen Cherry took an emotional victory in the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst Portadown's Adam Heatrick (National Hot Rods) and David Wright (ProStocks) were also feature race winners.

A sensational start to the Stock Rods Irish Championship final saw front row starters Derek McMillan and Marc Morrell set a blistering pace side by side for the opening number of laps. It was fantastic stuff, with Morrell edging ahead into the lead. As track conditions dried, McMillan came to the fore and reeled in Morrell before slipping back to the lead. Derek held sway out front right to the end to add the coveted Irish title to the European title he won earlier in the season, and in emphatic style too. Morrell held on for second ahead of Dublin's Gary Butler, with British Champion Bobbie Johnston in fourth.
Later in the evening the Irish Revenge reverse grid race fell to Willie Taggart, with Morrell and Butler again impressing on their way to second and third respectively.

The stars of the future in the Junior Productions also staged a fantastic Irish Championship encounter. Rivals Shea Duff and Drew McKeown shared the front row, with Duff the first to show in the lead. McKeown was embroiled in a great scrap also involving Adam McFall and Matthew Nicholl, with some three abreast moments that had the crowd holding their breath! McFall departed as he clouted the turn one wall, and at the restart Nicholl caught Duff napping to hit the front, only for Shea to come right back at him before another caution for a stranded Joel McPeake. At the resumption Duff edged clear to race home for the biggest title victory of his career, with Nicholl and McKeown completing the podium. Adam Weir received an award as best White or Yellow Grade driver.
The Irish Revenge race later in the evening fell to McPeake after a fine drive, the young Ballymena ace holding off McKeown and Ben Bruce all the way to the chequers.

The magnificent Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy was the prize on offer to the 2.0 Hot Rods on Saturday evening, with Wayne Woolsey racing clear in the tricky conditions to take the first qualifier of the event held in memory of the former racer. Allen Cherry, cousin of Lee, drove an excellent race to second ahead of Sean Dynes. Jason Devlin drove one of his best races for some time to stamp his authority on the second heat, holdimg on for a great win over Adam Best and Woolsey.
Woolsey quickly hit the front in the Lee Cherry Memorial Final, only to lose out when contact from the pack behind shifted him wide. That opened the door for Allen Cherry to power ahead, and despite the close attentions from behind he held on all the way home for a very emotional victory indeed. The Cherry family then presented Allen with the fantastic prize, as 'one of their own' took victory in the inaugural running of the event. Woolsey and Devlin took second and third respectively, with Best demoted to fourth for contact.

Round five of the National Hot Rods Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI saw a first ever win in heat one for Armagh's Conor McElmeel after a fine drive, ahead of World Champion Adam Maxwell and young Jaimie McCurdy. Maxwell went one better in heat two, taking the win over Dungannon's Derek Martin and Portadown ace Glenn Bell.
A drying track with only one optimum line was always going to make for a dramatic final, with Maxwell the first to show before getting shuffled down the pack. That allowed Bell to surge ahead, but he had a flying Adam Heatrick on his case .Eight laps from home Heatrick made his move for victory and challenged for the lead, racing home to the win over Bell and Lurgan's Ian McReynolds.

The Grand Final of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series was the main event for the ProStocks, with Lee Booth the early pacesetter in the first heat before Jordan McCann slipped through to take the win over Irish Champion Dan Shannon and Stephen Boyd. Heat two saw a clear win for European Champion Stephen McCready over Irish Open Champion Leonard Dunn, which guaranteed McCready pole position for the Grand Final on aggregate points gained over the series.
McCready made no mistake at the start of the feature race, taking the lead with Boyd in second. Boyd whittled down McCready's advantage, and as they headed to the final corner he went in with a do or die lunge to unseat the leader. Both went wide, opening the door for Davy Wright to come through to snatch a sensational win by a matter of inches at the line. Boyd and McCready took second and third at the end of a truly entertaining encounter.

Tullyroan Oval's double British Championship Speedweekend saw some tremendous racing across two packed days of short oval action, with Portadown's Adam Hylands landing the prestigious National Hot Rods British Championship and Norfolk's Jason Cooper taking the Superstox British crown back across the Irish Sea. Amongst a whole host of other championship races, Portadown's Wayne Woolsey was victorious in the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Open Championship, England's Nick Roots won the Superstox Irish Open Championship and young Ballymena ace Aaron Ward was the inaugural winner of the Ninja Karts Keir Millar Memorial Trophy.

A cosmopolitan field from right across the British Isles contested the Dilly Roofing Supplies National Hot Rods British Championship, with two heats on Saturday evening determining the grid for Sunday's final. From pole position Broughshane's Jaimie McCurdy was never headed in the opening heat, initially leading English veteran Dick Hillard. Jaimie took the win ahead of a fast charging Derek Martin, with Shane Murray in third. Heat two was a drama filled race from start to finish, although former British Champion Glenn Bell could well feel otherwise as he led from start to finish. Adam Hylands and Gary Wilson filled out the top three in a race which saw defending champion Dave Casey disqualified for triggering a crash which eliminated three cars and another huge moment which left Murray and Ben McKee nursing badly damaged cars.
Derek Martin and Bell shared the front of the grid in the wet conditions on Sunday for the British Championship decider. Martin got it all wrong at the green and went for a 360 degree spin, allowing Hylands into the lead with Bell challenging hard on his outside. Bell hung on superbly for lap after lap, before a caution period allowed Hylands to cement his lead. Even another caution later in the race couldn't deny the Portadown man as he added the British title to his National Championship win last month. Bell and Derek Martin filled the podium, the latter after a superb recovery drive.
The British revenge race saw the grid from the British Championship reversed. England's European Champion Carl Waller-Barrett led for much of the distance before losing out to World Champion Adam Maxwell. Maxwell took the flag but was demoted after he was adjudged to have made contact with Waller-Barrett to take the lead. That handed the win to Ian McReynolds ahead of Waller-Barrett and Maxwell. The final race of the day was for the coveted Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy, which was led off with Clive Richardson's Leslie Dallas replica machine acting as pace car. With a dry line appearing on the Tullyroan track, Hylands made good his pole position to lead from start to finish in what was a hugely entertaining encounter. Unfortunately for Adam though a technical infringement saw him excluded from the result, handing the magnificent trophy to Derek Martin ahead of Keith Martin and Gary Wilson.

The opening Superstox event of the weekend was their Mk2 escort Shells & Spares British Championship final with the grid formed by public draw. Polesitter Neil Davison and England's Jake Sturt both had turns out front on the opening laps, before World Champion Jason Cooper from Norfolk powered ahead to take up the running. Fellow Englishman Brett Wesbroom came through to second, but just couldn't match Cooper's pace as he romped home to take the British title from a 27 car grid. Nick Roots with a superb drive from grid 21 came home third to make it an all English top three.
Saturday's support heat saw Scotland's Chris Cuthbert set the early pace, before Lee Davison powered past. He had no answer to Chris Roots though as the former National Champion took another race victory for the English visitors ahead of Cooper and Davison. The meeting final saw Davison make amends with a superb drive that netted him the victory over Cooper and Nick Roots.

Sunday's Superstox racing was for the Irish Open Championship, with the opening heat again seeing a great battle between Chris Roots and Davison. Roots took the win over Lee, with Cooper again excelling in third from the very back of the line up. Scotland's Chris Hay made a great start to the second heat, but lost out to Sturt who was soon swallowed up by the fast moving Cooper. Jason took the win over Chris Roots and Sturt.
The Irish Open final paired Chris Roots and Cooper on the front row courtesy of their heat scores, but Cooper lost out in the early exchanges which saw Scotland's Barry Stephen end up on his side at the pit gate. At the resumption Nick Roots hit the front, and despite the best efforts of Cooper to get back on terms the young English driver took a deserved title victory over Cooper and his father Chris Roots. The Superstox entertained impressively all weekend with some superb action.

The main event for the 2.0 Hot Rods was the Irish Open Championship staged on Saturday evening, and with visitors present from Scotland and the Republic of Ireland it led to some entertaining racing. Aughnacloy's Adam Best took victory in the opening heat ahead of Scotland's British Champion Kenny Purdie and local man Allen Cherry. Scotch Street's Wayne Woolsey was a clear winner of the reversed grid second qualifier, chased home by European Champion Stephen Emerson and another Scottish visitor, Gordon Alexander.
Technical problems saw Emerson a non-starter for the Irish Open final, with Woolsey cruising into a clear lead early on as Best and Cherry battled for second. Cherry crashed out heavily on turn two to bring out a caution, but with backmarkers between leader Woolsey and second placed Best it was Wayne who cruised home to the Irish Open title. Best and Mervyn Emerson completed the podium.

Sunday's racing was for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Fife's Billy Bonnar getting the better of Woolsey early on to go ahead. Bonnar looked all set to take the win, only to get all crossed up out of the final turn which allowed Woolsey to nick the victory on the line by the smallest of margins. Alexander upheld Scottish honour by taking the second heat ahead of Stephen Emerson and Purdie. The final saw a reduced grid as our Scottish visitors had to depart to catch the ferry home. Best and Woolsey set the early pace, only to tangle which put both out. Stephen Emerson duly accepted the lead and the victory, leading home his brother Mervyn and debutant Aaron Beattie.

The young starlets in the Ninja Karts were competing in the inaugural Keir Millar Memorial Trophy on Sunday, a superbly presented trophy designed and presented by Micky McFall and held in memory of the first ever Ninja Karts World Champion who tragically lost his life in an accident 18 months ago. The lower graders dominated the heats, with Curtis McConkey taking the opener ahead of Brandon Litter and Aaron Ward. McConkey and Litter also impressed in the second heat, again finishing first and second with Daniel Stewart and Lacy Bevan racing well in third and fourth.
McConkey and Litter set off from the front row in the Keir Millar Memorial final, but it was Ward who stormed ahead into the lead. The youngsters were circling at a breathtaking pace, and despite Stewart Hanna coming on strong in the latter stages Ward had all under control to take a magnificent win to take the fantastic trophy which he could barely lift! Hanna and Lily Gallagher completed the top three, with all the racers receiving a medal from the Millar and McFall families as a reward for their sterling efforts on track.

The Stocks Rods were in action on Saturday evening, with Jonny Gillespie leading until half way in the first heat before losing out to flying former 1300 Stock Car star Curtis Greer who took the win. Gillespie again set the pace in heat two, this time losing out to flying Dubliner Keith Butler. Butler took the chequers ahead of Gillespie and Rod Fleck. Having lost out in the heats, Gillespie was in no mood to do similar in the final, leading all the way from start to finish for a tidy victory. Fleck and Butler completed the top three, with Ed Davis netting fourth after a superb race long battle with Greer.

The Lightning Rods were also in action on Saturday night, with former World Champion Scott Cochrane putting a superb outside pass on Alastair Stewart and Mark Overend to take the win in the opening heat. Overend set the heat two pace early on before losing out to Stewart. He in turn had no answer to British Champion Jordan Rochford, as he took a great win over Stewart and Mark Corry. After two runner up slots in the heats, Stewart was the man on fire in the feature race. He powered past Overend on lap nine to take up the running and cruise home to a great win indeed. Mark McCambridge and Irish Champion Winston Weir inherited second and third after Richard Stewart was docked to fourth for contact late on in the race.

Completing the Sunday line up in the rain were the ProStocks, with novice Jay White impressing as he led the way in the opening heat until past mid distance. Adam White relegated him to race on to the win ahead of Stephen Boyd and Stephen McCready. James Goldie led the way in heat two, before losing out to former Stock Rods ace Raymond Harper who took the victory over Adam White and McCready. Heat winners Harper and Adam White contested the lead in the final, only to tangle and run wide which opened the door for European Champion McCready to slide past into a lead he wouldn't lose. Harper and Irish Open Champion Leonard Dunn took the other podium places.
